is just out. it shows 45% of americans see mr. romney more negatively after hearing the tape. almost half the country. another poll shows a majority of americans, 55%, had a negative reaction to hearing romney's words on the tape. and the big one, president obama leads nationally by seven points. mr. romney should be spooked, but the real fright night is tomorrow, when he'll have to stand up there and answer to the 47% and to the president. >>> joining me now is former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, now an nbc news political analyst and elisia menendez. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> i hope you like the sound effects, governor, i did it for you. >> if you get any thinner, you'll look like a skeleton on halloween night. >> oh e well, we'll talk about that another time. let me say, the 47% is bad enough. it's haunting romney and his campaign. but we have just got from "the huffington post" a statement that mr. ryan made, a sound bite, about americans that sounds very similar. let me play this to you for the first time and get your reaction. this was a year ago, paul ryan last
americans are expecting mitt romney to go out there and do something and i don't know whether that as even possible right now. the first debate means everything. the whole world is watching this thing. this is a big, big debate on wednesday night. this is much bigger than the mccain-obama debate. >> today mitt romney traveled from boston to colorado where the debate will be held as a major player in romney's fund raiser confirmed to fox business that a few new york donors have backed away from financial commitments to the romney campaign and instead said they will spend their money to help the republicans hold on to the house of represents and pick up seats in the senate. the debates will be very important, said one person with knowledge of the matter. if romney does well, that money could come back. >>> new jersey's governor, chris christie the current front runner for the presidential nomination 2016 has decided his job is to state the obvious. >> it's a huge night. we've had a bad couple of weeks and we want to turn this around and if you want to turn it around you've got to perform on
is as governor romney has said repeatedly, he is running to help 100% of americans." he has said that. he said that repeatedly. it still resonating in a negative way with voters. what do you think he has to say about the 47% which has dogged his campaign since that video came out? >> remember, that was recorded during a fund-raising activity. it was a cut. this is an opportunity for governor romney to have his message come through unfiltered to the american people. that's, i think, what needs to come through. his sincerity, his warmth, his intellect, his optimism on the future of america and how we solve the challenges, and the two roads. the road the president defined over the last four years, we don't think the american people have embraced and will continue to embrace, and the road of optimism and pro-growth policies to get america back to work. that's the choice. >> isn't the problem for mitt romney that people obviously believe, which was the mantra, that the democratic party tried to define that the obama campaign tried to define, that is not a guy for the 100%? this is a guy who frankly
against governor romney and this is chance to cut through the clutter and talk to the american people about the issues they care about, namely the economy. governor romney has an ability, a chance to talk to these voters that don't feel like the last four years have -- that american economy has lived up to its potential. they don't feel like job growth is where it needs to be, like take home pay is where it needs to be. the chance to talk to those voters is an incredible opportunity and one that the governor hopes to seize tonight. >> of course the romney forces, the super pacs and your campaign, have also spent millions of dollars, the only question is which side is getting through to more people. this is what robert gibbs, one of your counter partss, a big supporter and surrogate and former press secretary for the president had to say earlier on the program. >> if you want to be straight with the american people and the american people want you to be straight with them, you owe it to the american people to explain not through, you know, mumbo jumbo or fuzzy math or voodo economics h
's going to create jobs and help turn the american economy around. >> do you agree or does mitt romney now believe that todd akin should still step aside and get out of the race and that what he said was so offensive and wrong wrong he should not be the republican candidate? >> yeah. governor romney made very clear at -- when i'm sorry when congressman akin made those remarks he disagreed with them entirely and could not stand by them and that hasn't changed. >> and so he's not going to go along with other republicans in the senate campaign committee and people like roy blount who's major figure in your own campaign, senator blount, and former senator kip bond who have endorsed todd akin? >> yeah. i can't speak for governor bond and senator blount, but governor romney has made his position very clear on that and it has not changed. >> and what about what chris christie had to say the other day on "meet the press," told david gregory that on thursday morning it's going to be a new race, he said mitt romney's going to be standing on the same stage with the president and i'm telling you come
as true. mitt romney's own plan would cost 800,000 u.s. jobs according to the study for american progress. the corporate tax cuts would cost the u.s., according to that study, nearly $1 trillion. all right. now the third debate topic, and the third myth that is -- we are debunking here health you will hear this over and over again. you have heard it. the memo reads $716 billion will be raided from medicare to pay for obamacare. now this is the same raiding medicare lie that romney has been pushing since august. >> romney: the president's plan cuts medicare -- excuse me -- well let's see -- there we go. by $716 billion. cut. >> jennifer: polititfact, the fact checker in looking at that statement rated it mostly false because here is the truth. president obama has made medicare more efficient by cutting costs in the program to the tune of $716 billion. that's cutting costs, not cutting patient care, not kicking people off of medicare, not cutting benefits, just cutting costs by making it more efficient. and then he reinvested those savings back into medicare t
for the past four years and how mitt romney can talk straight to the american people about how he has a plan to create jobs, specific things, like in my home state of virginia, he's going to allow us to have exploration off shore with energy so we can have good high-paying jobs. that's something supported by democrat senators like mark warner and jim webb in my home state of virginia and something this president has stopped. we're also going to get rid of those job-killing regulations that killed 1,200 jobs in the coal fields of virginia and west virginia and elsewhere. and we're also going to cut taxes on small businesses. cut taxes across the board of a -- across the board tax cut instead of the promise that barack obama is going to increase taxes across the board of the biggest tax increase in history on january 1st. and mitt romney understands that you have to have small business to grow these jobs. and that's the way we're going to invest in small businesses. take the job-killing obamacare regulations that will crush small businesses, but then give -- replace it with good policies that
himself to the american people and erase all the impressions of the mitt romney we met earlier and reveal a coherent person, one voters can imagine as a leader. is this debate more romney against himself? critics paint him displaying this flaccid leadership. >> he has to present himself as a president who would represent all americans. he said that several times. he's practicing that debate line. here again, even when he engages with that comment, it reminds people of that 47% remark. you see him over the last couple of days. i think it was today there is an interview in the "denver post" where he seems to be softening his stances around immigration. here is a candidate looking at a huge deficit in some of these swing states, deficits among hispanics, deficits among women. he's got to make ground up in this 90 minutes. it's not a long time. he has to please republicans who have been calling for him to get more specific in terms of his plans around tax reform and all sorts of other ideas he has. he has a real tall order going into this debate. >> governor romney is dogged about the 47% rem

convention has gone away. it's dissipated and more americans are looking at the romney ryan ticket as one that will address issues and will deliver a plan that has impact on middle class americans, that will bring down taxes for all americans. period. there's only one candidate that's actually talking about raising taxes and there's another candidate, the romney ryan ticket, that will cut taxes for all americans. so i think as we go into this, we'll hear a lot more of that. obviously at the debate and this is the next phase of that campaign. >> mitt romney leads according to our poll, on unemployment and the deficit. let me ask you this, ben, because one thing our viewers may assume is that democratic base is now energized and the convention is now partly responsible for that. recently, jim -- our new pl, how do you feel strength of support, 72% of voters are strongly excited. 74% of obama voters. that's a virtual tie and extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in november, 65% of republicans. 64% of democrats. does that worry you? in '08, part of the reason the president won was his

will join me live following tonight's big debate. >>> good evening, americans. good to have you with us. republicans are hoping for a game changer in the next few days, but romney's path to victory is starting to disappear. president obama is ahead in all of the vital swing states needed for victory. if the election were held today an associated press analysis shows president obama would win at least 271 electoral votes. 270 votes wins the presidency. the romney campaign is struggling, to say the least. romney's own running mate was forced to admit how their campaign has stumbled. >> so, yeah, we have had some missteps, but at the end of the day, the choice is really clear. we're giving people a clear choice. >> paul ryan was asked about the tax cuts for the millionaires proposed by romney and ryan's budget plans. he was a guest on fox news sunday with chris wallace and the vice presidential candidate made some missteps of his own. >> how much would it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> i'm just talking about -- the cut in tax rates. >> it's lower, all americans tax rates. it's revenue n
here. romney and ryan will give $5 trillion in tax breaks to the wealthiest americans. subtract an unspecified amount of money of unnamed deductions. somehow you're going to get a revenue neutral tax plan. it's a plan so bogus not even a fox news host can understand it. >> you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go through the math. >> paul ryan, paul ryan, if you want to be a heartbeat away from the presidency, you're going to have to explain your plans to the american people. take all the time you want. especially here on "the ed show." you guys have been complaining about media fairness preponderance let's talk it over. today paul ryan told a radio host in milwaukee why he wouldn't give chris wallace the math. >> you know, i like chris. i didn't want to get into all of the math of this because everybody would start changing the channel. >> so nice of paul ryan to be concerned about chris wallace's ratings rather than presenting the details of his plan to the voters. paul ryan is the chairman of the house budget committee and he can't

in governor romney's favor. >> almost 6 out of 10 americans think that obama will take this debate, romney goes in as under dog with low expectations, if he does well, he will exceed those expectations. i think he has a good chance of winning this debate. lou: what about, you made it clear, you are not overly impressed with the mr. obama's capabilities, he is no bill clinton in that regard. hollywood will be prompter-free. >> we've seen obama say there are 57 states in the union, then he goes, some kind of -- takes over his face, and it looks like he is caught in the lights like a deer. when he does not hit the ball in the sweet spot, he starts to crumble a little bit. because, the facade is so important to him. lou: you think that --- who is more gaffe prone? who has do you think the greater likelihood of committing, well significant mistake. >> i am sure romney does not offer $10,000 bet. lou: i remember governor perry's face. >> obama will have to think how many books do i have to sell to make $10,000. lou: did you see the pictures, sitting with a big wad of cash in his hand, president

things americans know we're on the wrong track on. i think what you're going to see mitt romney talk a lot about his plans to reverse that trend. policies of obama that have not worked. and why romney's plans will work. i think that's the heart and soul of what this election is about. >> you know, he has been talking about this on the stump speech. and i mean, tell me why for mitt romney the economy is not resonating with him more. when you look at the polls and our polling in particular, the president and mitt romney are basically neck and neck on the issue of the economy. a little bit of an edge for your candidate on the issue of unemployment. but why, with all of those statistics that you just rattled off, why isn't your guy, the business guy, doing better on that? >> it is somewhat perplexing given how poorly the president has managed the economy. there's been a lot of promises, and platitudes. but not a lot of results. that's mitt romney's shtick. he's about getting results, as governor of massachusetts and turning around the olympics. i think there's been a couple things. one t
presidential nominee paul ryan said a romney administration would help more americans find jobs. >> we have a jobs crisis in america. wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? ( applause ) we can't afford four more years. we need a real recovery. take a look at just jobs. we lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs since the president took office. he's offering a new tax increase on our job creators that will cost us 700,000 jobs. we're offering really forms. >> ifill: which candidate has the better plan to get the economy back on track? that's the key question in battleground states like north carolina, which only months ago seemed out of reach for the democrats this year. but it's back in play again. jeffrey brown traveled there to discover why. >> lead the way. brown: 26-year-old dewayne owens who served in the marines and is now a professional mixeded marshal artist usually takes on tougher opponents than your correspondent. >> i see. brown: but this weekend on a break from training at the gym in durham, he offered a few pointers >> when i kick i'm thinking about kicking thro
that mitt romney would raise taxes on most americans to fund tax cuts for the wealthy. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts? look, folks, we've seen this movie before. massive tax cuts for the wealthy. eliminating restrictions on wall street. let the banks write their own rules. we know where it ends. it ends in a catastrophe of the middle class and the great recession of 2008. folks, we cannot go back to that. >> woodruff: the republican national committee and the romney campaign seized on biden's remark about the middle class. they called it a "stunning admission" that the president's policies have been bad for the economy and the middle class. but biden-- at his next stop, in asheville, north carolina-- said what has buried the middle class is the result of policies that romney and ryan are supporting. in clinton, iowa, vice presidential nominee paul ryan said a romney administration would help more americans find jobs. >> we have a jobs crisis in ame

who clearly sound like they're eventually going to support romney, is the idea that he's out of touch, that he seems to not understand what it's like to be a middle class american. and that's where, you know, this 47% alone wouldn't have had this kind of resonance if it hadn't been what has been a i would argue a six-month campaign by the obama folks starting with tax returns. frankly, you had the republican primary candidates did it to him. you throw it all together, defining him as the out of touch rich guy. rick santorum did it during the primaries. the obama campaign has been doing it, and then 47% comes along and simply amplifies the narrative in a third party verification-type way, and you put the whole suit together, and that to me ishurdle right now for romney, the idea is he in touch with the average american. i think that's why he's stuck in the mid-40s. >> not everything he's said has been malignant but his cavalier way of saying let's bet $10,000 to gov perry or referring to everybody who might not have health insurance and need emergency care as living in an apartment. it
